[Bug 1594455] Re: enable CRC32 and AES ARM64 by default or as module


This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves
the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the
results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-
xenial' to 'verification-done-xenial'.

  enable CRC32 and AES ARM64 by default or as module

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
Status in linux source package in Xenial:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  The following kernel config options are disabled in linux-
  image-4.4.0-25-generic_4.4.0-25.44_arm64.deb and earlier. I ask that
  these config options to be turned on or set to use as module so that a
  kernel running on hardware that supports the instructions will use
  them.  These modules use module_cpu_feature_match() so it should fall
  back to using the generic versions when run on hardware that does not
  have the instructions.
